The ultimate goal for leviathan, as we saw in Part 4, is to tear down the Body of Christ Jesus so that she does not rise into the perfection and full equipping of the saints into the maturity of faith in Christ Jesus. Therefore, a person or ministry given over to this spirit will have the fruit of division and divisiveness operating.
15 This [superficial] wisdom is not such as comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual (animal), even devilish (demoniacal).16 For wherever there is jealousy (envy) and contention (rivalry and selfish ambition), there will also be confusion (unrest, disharmony, rebellion) and all sorts of evil and vile practices.17 But the wisdom from above is first of all pure (undefiled); then it is peace-loving, courteous (considerate, gentle). [It is willing to] yield to reason, full of compassion and good fruits; it is wholehearted and straightforward, impartial and unfeigned (free from doubts, wavering, and insincerity). James 3:15-17.
Leviathan in Hebrew is livyâthân meaning “a wreathed animal, serpent, the crocodile or some other large sea monster, the constellation of the dragon; also a symbol of Babylon.” (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word #3882). The root word of leviathan is lâvâh which means “to twine, to unite, to remain, also to borrow (as in the form of obligation) to lend, abide with, cleave, join (self).” (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word #3867). This root word of leviathan is the same root word for “Levi” that is Lêvîy a son of Jacob, the tribe which was chosen to serve God’s HOUSE, to serve Aaron the Priest. (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word #3878). Levi in Hebrew means “attached” and comes from the root word lâvâh.” (Part 2 of Pulling Down the Cursed Structure of Pride in Leviathan). As we learned earlier the spirit of leviathan is going to draw that which is united, cleaved, abiding with God by causing pride to rise up in them so that they begin pulling away from building the Body of Christ Jesus and instead bring division and begin building the enemy’s system Babylon. Leviathan is a symbol for Babylon, as well as indicating sea monster, serpent, crocodile and constellation for the dragon (satan). Therefore, we can see the enemy’s kingdom all through the word, ending in Revelation 19 where she is fallen and depiction of the city Babylon is in Revelation 18.
18 Then I saw another angel descending from heaven, possessing great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his radiance and splendor.2 And he shouted with a mighty voice, She is fallen! Mighty Babylon is fallen! She has become a resort and dwelling place for demons, a dungeon haunted by every loathsome spirit, an abode for every filthy and detestable bird.3 For all nations have drunk the wine of her passionate unchastity, and the rulers and leaders of the earth have joined with her in committing fornication (idolatry), and the businessmen of the earth have become rich with the wealth of her excessive luxury and wantonness.4 I THEN HEARD ANOTHER VOICE FROM HEAVEN SAYING, COME OUT FROM HER, MY PEOPLE, SO THAT YOU MAY NOT SHARE IN HER SINS, NEITHER PARTICIPATE IN HER PLAGUES.5 FOR HER INIQUITIES (HER CRIMES AND TRANSGRESSIONS) ARE PILED UP AS HIGH AS HEAVEN, AND GOD HAS REMEMBERED HER WICKEDNESS AND [HER] CRIMES [AND CALLS THEM UP FOR SETTLEMENT].6 Repay to her what she herself has paid [to others] and double [her doom] in accordance with what she has done. Mix a double portion for her in the cup she mixed [for others].7 To the degree that she glorified herself and reveled in her wantonness [living deliciously and luxuriously], to that measure impose on her torment and anguish and tears and mourning. Since in her heart she boasts, I am not a widow; as a queen [on a throne] I sit, and I shall never see suffering or experience sorrow—8 So shall her plagues (afflictions, calamities) come thick upon her in a single day, pestilence and anguish and sorrow and famine; and she shall be utterly consumed (burned up with fire), for mighty is the Lord God Who judges her.9 And the rulers and leaders of the earth who joined her in her immorality (idolatry) and luxuriated with her will weep and beat their breasts and lament over her when they see the smoke of her conflagration. 10 They will stand a long way off, in terror of her torment, and they will cry, Woe and alas, the great city, the mighty city, Babylon! In one single hour how your doom (judgment) has overtaken you! 11 And earth’s businessmen will weep and grieve over her because no one buys their freight (cargo) any more. 12 Their merchandise is of gold, silver, precious stones, and pearls; of fine linen, purple, silk, and scarlet [stuffs]; all kinds of scented wood, all sorts of articles of ivory, all varieties of objects of costly woods, bronze, iron, and marble; 13 Of cinnamon, spices, incense, ointment and perfume, and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, fine flour and wheat; of cattle and sheep, horses and conveyances; and of slaves (the bodies) and souls of men! 14 The ripe fruits and delicacies for which your soul longed have gone from you, and all your luxuries and dainties, your elegance and splendor are lost to you, never again to be recovered or experienced! 15 The dealers who handled these articles, who grew wealthy through their business with her, will stand a long way off, in terror of her doom and torment, weeping and grieving aloud, and saying, 16 Alas, alas for the great city that was robed in fine linen, in purple and scarlet, bedecked and glittering with gold, with precious stones, and with pearls! 17 Because in one [single] hour all the vast wealth has been destroyed (wiped out). And all ship captains and pilots, navigators and all who live by seafaring, the crews and all who ply their trade on the sea, stood a long way off, 18 And exclaimed as they watched the smoke of her burning, What city could be compared to the great city!19 And they threw dust on their heads as they wept and grieved, exclaiming, Woe and alas, for the great city, where all who had ships on the sea grew rich [through her extravagance] from her great wealth! In one single hour she has been destroyed and has become a desert! 20 Rejoice (celebrate) over her, O heaven! O saints (people of God) and apostles and prophets, because God has executed vengeance for you upon her! 21 Then a single powerful angel took up a boulder like a great millstone and flung it into the sea, crying, With such violence shall Babylon the great city be hurled down to destruction and shall never again be found. 22 And the sound of harpists and minstrels and flute players and trumpeters shall never again be heard in you, and no skilled artisan of any craft shall ever again be found in you, and the sound of the millstone shall never again be heard in you.23 An d never again shall the light of a lamp shine in you, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall never be heard in you again; for your businessmen were the great and prominent men of the earth, and by your magic spells and poisonous charm all nations were led astray (seduced and deluded). 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all those who have been slain (slaughtered) on earth. Revelation 18:1-24
The Babylon system, which of leviathan, purposes to destroy God’s people and hold them captive. Those prophets and apostles that have stood up against the system of Babylon all through God’s word were slaughtered for standing up for God’s truth. Much martyrdom is a result of standing against the system of Babylon, satan’s system, and exposing it to the light. We see now in America that is a hate crime to stand on God’s Word that a marriage is defined by God’s Word that a husband shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife and they shall become one. When this truth is stood firmly on and exposes that sodomy is not of God’s truth but profanes Him in every way and reveals the nature of man’s condition of having a depraved mind it is considered evil today. That is how far we have come now; Babylon is enlarging with the materialism, worldliness, and lust rampant so much all because of pride birthing the existence of sin and iniquity. The enemy is content with people who are given over to pride because he knows that they will give into the lusts within their own heart and act on them. Lust causes us to covet something but it is pride within us that causes us to act on the lust! Why else would King David who stayed home from war, coveting Bathsheba, act on putting her husband on the front lines so he would die in order to marry her. King David lusted for Bathsheba, but it was pride in him that was stirred up causing him to steal, kill and destroy through the enemy. King David tore down the sacred union God had created, marriage, and stole another man’s wife, killed a man to have what he wanted. That is the same thing leviathan through pride stirred up in us gets us to do in order that we would not walk in the wisdom from above, God’s wisdom, but would prefer to walk in worldly wisdom obtaining that which we lust for by pride swelling up in us to get it!
When Holy Spirit starts exposing those things in our soul that were built on the world system, the system of Babylon, and we repent of it, a stripping process will come in order to remove it out of our life. Therefore, if we obtained a house and cars from the Babylon system when the stripping process happens we will have those things pulled away from us in order that we would only build up God’s Kingdom that cannot be shaken.
6 For thus says the Lord of hosts: Yet once more, in a little while, I will shake and make tremble the [starry] heavens, the earth, the sea, and the dry land; 7 And I will shake all nations and the desire and the precious things of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with splendor, says the Lord of hosts. 8 The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine, says the Lord of hosts. 9 The latter glory of this house [with its successor, to which Jesus came] shall be greater than the former, says the Lord of hosts; and in this place will I give peace and prosperity, says the Lord of hosts. Haggai 2:6-9.
God allows the shaking to shake all that is not of Him out of our lives! When Rich and I went through the shaking, we lost a home, a car, other material objects we had and all that we had obtained because lust in us wanted that object and pride caused us to act in a manner to get that object. The pride could have been manifested in getting a loan God did not tell us to take out, working more jobs than we were able to so that the money would come in to pay for all the debt that was Babylon’s debt. No matter what we tried to do to keep the things which were in our hands as a result of Babylon we found out we could not keep; we had come into agreement with God’s word that we wanted nothing but Him! Right before this stripping of the Babylon system in our lives I prayed this prayer “God take down all my idols, make me humble and give me prudence!” Well let me tell you that prayer worked immediately and before you could blink an eye our lives had totally changed where we lost much, but that which we lost was Babylon! Therefore, when we were stripped to a stump many people thought that we were cursed and irresponsible because we could not pay our bills to keep that which Babylon gave us to only keep us distracted and asleep so we would not rise up in the call of Christ Jesus. We had to pray for others that were misjudging us knowing that we were after God’s plans and purposes, the Kingdom of God and wanted nothing of this world.
EVERYTHING THAT IS NOT OF GOD WILL BE SHAKEN OUT OF YOUR LIFE IF YOU ALLOW IT!!!!
But oh my the blessings we walk in now; what we have now is double portion to what we had before but it was a process of years. The stripping happened to remove that which is not of God only to build and plant God’s Kingdom in an accelerated measure and bring that which is of God into our hands and all I can tell you is GOD IS GOOD!!!! Rich and I are walking in God’s promises now by faith and seeing them manifested but it took losing everything only to gain Jesus!
32 Remember Lot’s wife! 33 Whoever tries to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will preserve and quicken it. Luke 17:32-33.
Therefore, God’s Kingdom calls for us to lose everything! When we repent and allow the stripping to come then God accelerates the building of His Kingdom within our lives so that it is made manifest, building the Kingdom of God, and in turn building the Body of Christ Jesus! Therefore, Holy Spirit is exposing the spirit of leviathan distinguished in God’s Word to operate in pride so that we no longer build Babylon but rather build the Body of Christ Jesus! God speaks of Babylon’s destruction in Jeremiah 51, depicting her as a seductress luring people into her demise. God calls His people out of her and moreover, in verse 55 declares His army shall arise and it will be His people whose voice sounds like a ROAR, of great waters and all I could think about was Revelation 5:5 the Lion of the Tribe of Judah!!!
51 Thus says the Lord: Behold, I will raise up against Babylon and against those who dwell among those rebelling against Me a destroying wind and spirit;2 And I will send to Babylon strangers or winnowers who will winnow her and will empty her land; for in the day of calamity they will be against her on every side.3 Against him who bends let the archer bend his bow, and against him who lifts himself up in his coat of mail. And spare not her young men; devote [to God] and utterly destroy her entire host.4 Thus they shall fall down slain in the land of the Chaldeans, and wounded in her streets.5 For Israel has not been widowed and forsaken, nor has Judah, by his God, the Lord of hosts, though their land is full of guilt against the Holy One of Israel.6 Flee out of the midst of Babylon! Let every man save his life! Let not destruction come upon you through her [punishment for] sin and guilt. For it is the time of the Lord’s vengeance; He will render to her a recompense.7 Babylon was a golden cup in the Lord’s hand, making all the earth drunken. The nations drank of her wine; therefore the nations have gone mad.8 Babylon has suddenly fallen and is shattered (destroyed)! Wail for her [if you care to]! Get balm for her [incurable] pain; if [you do] so she may [possibly] be healed!9 We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed. Forsake her and let us each go to his own country, for her guilt and the judgment against her reach to heaven and are lifted even to the skies.10 The Lord has brought forth and made known the righteousness [of our cause]; come and let us declare in Zion the work of the Lord our God.11 Make clean and sharp the arrows, take up the shields or coats of armor [and cover your bodies with them]! The Lord has stirred up the spirit of the kings of the Medes [who with the Persians will destroy the Babylonian Empire], for His purpose concerning Babylon is to destroy it; for that is the vengeance of the Lord, the vengeance [upon Babylon for the plundering and destruction] of His temple.12 Set up a standard or signal [to spread the news] upon the walls of Babylon! Make the watch and blockade strong, set the guards, prepare the ambushes! For the Lord has both purposed and done that which He spoke against the inhabitants of Babylon.13 O [Babylon] you who dwell by many waters, rich in treasures, your end has come, and the line measuring your life is cut.14 The Lord of hosts has sworn by Himself, saying, Surely I will fill you with men, as with [a swarm of] locusts [who strip a land clean], and they will lift up a song and shout [of victory] over you.15 He made the earth by His power; He established the world by His wisdom and stretched out the heavens by His understanding.16 When He utters His voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, and He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth. He makes lightnings for the rain and brings forth the wind from His treasuries.17 Every man has become stupid and brutelike, without knowledge [of God]; every goldsmith is put to shame by the images he has made; for his molten idols are a lie, and there is no breath [of life] in them.18 They are worthless (emptiness, falsity, futility), a work of delusion and worthy of derision; in the time of their inspection and punishment they shall [helplessly] perish.19 Not like these [gods] is He Who is the Portion of Jacob [the true God on Whom Israel has a claim], for He is the One Who formed all things, and Israel is the tribe of His inheritance—the Lord of hosts is His name.20 You [Cyrus of Persia, soon to conquer Babylon] are My battle-ax or maul and weapon of war—for with you I break nations in pieces, with you I destroy kingdoms,21 With you I break in pieces the horse and his rider, with you I break in pieces the chariot and the charioteer,22 With you I break in pieces man and woman, with you I break in pieces old man and youth, with you I break in pieces young man and maiden,23 With you I break in pieces the shepherd and his flock, with you I break in pieces the farmer and his yoke of oxen, and with you I break in pieces governors and commanders.24 And I will [completely] repay Babylon and all the inhabitants of Chaldea for all the evil that they have done in Zion—before your very eyes [I will do it], says the Lord.25 Behold, I am against you, says the Lord, O destroying mountain [which is burning out, you who will be as barren and desolate as an extinct volcano], you who [would] destroy the whole earth. I will stretch out My hand over and against you and roll you down from the [burnt] crags and will make you a burnt-out mountain [of combustive fires].26 And [O Babylon] they shall not take your cracked stones for a cornerstone, or any stone for foundations, but you shall be waste and desolate forever, says the Lord.27 Set up a standard or signal in the land [to spread the news]! Blow the trumpet among the nations! Prepare and dedicate the nations for war against her; call against her the kingdoms of Ararat, Minni, and Ashkenaz. Appoint a marshal against her; cause the horses to come up like [a swarm of] locusts [when their wings are not yet released from their horny cases].28 Prepare and dedicate the nations for war against her—the kings of Media, with their governors and commanders (deputies), and every land of their dominion.29 [I foresee this:] The land trembles and writhes in pain and sorrow, for the purposes of the Lord against Babylon stand—to make the land of Babylon a desolation without inhabitant.30 The mighty warriors of Babylon have ceased to fight; they have remained in their holds. Their might has failed; they have become [weak and helpless] like women. Her dwelling places are burned up; her bars [and defenses generally] are broken.31 One post shall run to meet another and one messenger to meet another to show the king of Babylon that his city is taken on every side and to its farthest end,32 And that the passages [or ferries across the Euphrates] are stopped, and the great marshes they [the Medes] have burned with fire, and the men of war are frightened.33 For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: The Daughter of Babylon is like a threshing floor at the time it is [being prepared]; yet a little while and the time of harvest shall come to her.34 [The inhabitants of Zion say] Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon has devoured us, he has crushed us, he has made us an empty vessel. Like a monster he has swallowed us up, he has filled his belly with our delicacies; he has rinsed us out and cast us away.35 May the violence done to me and to my flesh and blood be upon Babylon, will the inhabitant of Zion say; and, May my blood be upon the inhabitants of Chaldea, will Jerusalem say.36 Therefore thus says the Lord: Behold, I will plead your cause and take vengeance for you. I will dry up her lake or great reservoir and make her fountain dry.37 And Babylon shall become heaps [of ruins], a dwelling place of jackals, a horror (an astonishing desolation) and a hissing [of amazement], without inhabitant.38 They [the Chaldean lords] shall be roaring together [before their sudden capture] like young lions [over their prey], they [the princes] shall be growling like lions’ whelps.39 When the revelers are inflamed [with wine and lust during their drinking bouts], I will prepare them a feast [of My wrath] and make them drunk, that they may rejoice and fall asleep to a perpetual sleep and not waken, says the Lord.40 I will bring them down like lambs to the slaughter, like rams together with he-goats.41 How Sheshach [Babylon] is taken! And the praise of the whole earth is surprised and seized! How Babylon has become an astonishing desolation and a horror among the nations!42 The sea has come up upon Babylon; she is covered with the tumult and multitude of its waves.43 Her cities have become a desolation and a horror, a land of drought and a wilderness, a land in which no one lives, nor does any son of man pass through it.44 And I will punish and execute judgment upon Bel [the god] in Babylon and take out of his mouth what he has swallowed up [the sacred vessels and the people of Judah and elsewhere who were taken captive]. The nations will not flow any more to him. Yes, the wall of Babylon has fallen!45 My people, come out of the midst of her! And let every man save his life from the fierce anger of the Lord!46 And beware, lest your heart faint and you be afraid at the report (rumor) heard in the land; for in one year shall one report come and in another year another report, and violence shall be in the land, ruler against ruler.47 Therefore behold, the days will come when I will execute judgment and punishment upon the idols of Babylon; her whole land will be confounded and put to shame, and all her slain will fall in the midst of her.48 Then heaven and earth and all that is in them shall sing for joy over Babylon, for the [Median] destroyers shall come against her from the north, says the Lord.49 As Babylon caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all [her] land.50 You who have escaped the sword, go away, stand not still! [Seriously and earnestly] remember the Lord from afar [Babylon], and let [desolate] Jerusalem come into your mind.51 We are confounded and ashamed, for we have heard reproach; confusion and shame have covered our faces, for strangers have come into the [most] sacred parts of the sanctuary of the Lord [even those forbidden for entrance by all but the high priest or the appointed priests].52 Therefore behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will execute judgment upon [Babylon’s] idols and images, and throughout all her land the wounded will groan.53 Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she should fortify her strong height (her lofty stronghold), yet destroyers will come upon her from Me, says the Lord.54 The sound of a cry [comes] from Babylon, and [the sound of] great destruction and ruin from the land of the Chaldeans!55 For the Lord is destroying Babylon and laying her waste and stilling her great voice [the hum of the city’s life]. And the waves [of her conquerors] roar like great waters, the noise of their voices is raised up [like the tramping of an army].56 For the destroyer is coming upon her, upon Babylon; and her mighty warriors are taken, their bows are broken in pieces; for the Lord is a God of recompense; He will surely requite.57 And I will make drunk her princes and her wise men, her governors and her commanders (deputies) and her mighty warriors; and they will sleep a perpetual sleep and not waken, says the King—the Lord of hosts is His name.58 Thus says the Lord of hosts: The broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly overthrown and [the foundations] made bare, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; the peoples shall labor in vain, and the nations [only] to satisfy the fire, and they shall be weary.59 The word that Jeremiah the prophet commanded Seraiah son of Neriah, the son of Mahseiah, when he went with Zedekiah king of Judah to Babylon in the fourth year of his reign. Now this Seraiah was chief chamberlain or quartermaster [and brother of Baruch].60 So Jeremiah wrote in a book all the evil that would come upon Babylon—even all these words that are written against Babylon.61 And Jeremiah said to Seraiah, When you come to Babylon, see to it that you read all these words.62 Then say, O Lord, You have spoken concerning this place that it shall be cut off, so that nothing shall remain and dwell in it, neither man nor beast; but it shall be desolate forever.63 And it shall be that when you have finished reading this book, you shall bind a stone to it and cast it into the midst of the Euphrates.64 Then say, Thus will Babylon sink and not rise because of the evil that I will bring upon her; and [the Babylonians] will be weary (hopelessly exhausted). Thus far are the words of Jeremiah. Jeremiah 51:1-64 Amp
Therefore, Babylon in the word of God is exposed to the light in order that the destruction of that system is manifest so that it will not hold God’s people in bondage. This system when it creeps into a church, a ministry, a business, a family, a person’s life all it does is destroy God’s work, the building of His Body!!!
For example, this can be compared to an abusive relationship where a woman stays with an abusive husband because he has destroyed her confidence and who God has made her that she not only takes the abuse but stays with him even more so because of the abuse. Leviathan only destroys and wounds those under its control so it can allow a hook to get in everyone’s soul to manifest the spirit all throughout the group.
Domestic abuse falls into a common pattern, or cycle of violence:
◾ Abuse – Your abusive partner lashes out with aggressive, belittling, or violent behavior. The abuse is a power play designed to show you “who is boss.”
◾Guilt – After abusing you, your partner feels guilt, but not over what he’s done. He’s more worried about the possibility of being caught and facing consequences for his abusive behavior.
◾Excuses – Your abuser rationalizes what he or she has done. The person may come up with a string of excuses or blame you for the abusive behavior—anything to avoid taking responsibility.
◾”Normal” behavior — The abuser does everything he can to regain control and keep the victim in the relationship. He may act as if nothing has happened, or he may turn on the charm. This peaceful honeymoon phase may give the victim hope that the abuser has really changed this time.
◾Fantasy and planning – Your abuser begins to fantasize about abusing you again. He spends a lot of time thinking about what you’ve done wrong and how he’ll make you pay. Then he makes a plan for turning the fantasy of abuse into reality.
◾Set-up – Your abuser sets you up and puts his plan in motion, creating a situation where he can justify abusing you.
Your abuser’s apologies and loving gestures in between the episodes of abuse can make it difficult to leave. He may make you believe that you are the only person who can help him, that things will be different this time, and that he truly loves you. However, the dangers of staying are very real.

The leviathan spirit lashes out with aggressive behaviors that are used in belittling others in order to dominate and control. In addition, it creates a state of wounding in the soul of those under its system so that continue the wounding and the person being used by leviathan is kept in constant guilt over their sin and their unrepentant heart keeps them blind to the true repentance that needs to come to set them free from being the bully in the system of leviathan. The reason the person(s) are not repentant is actually PRIDE. After the person(s) is being used by the leviathan spirit commit a sinful act against another through the leviathan spirit they sit around and justify the reason to their ungodly actions, thinking they are trying to protect the system by wounding those whom they find a threat. Then the crazy thing about it is that those whom the system wounds keeps the wounded in their system through keeping them in guilt but in order to make themselves feel good are nice to them superficially as an abuser with his spouse. Later as in an abusive relationship relating to fantasy, the abuser fantasizes of abusing again. Likewise, those under leviathan’s control get together to meet and stir up lies against you, poison from the adder’s egg, they weave the web of deceit of leviathan and later they allow the enemy to set up the circumstance in which to commit the act of sin. David shows this abundantly in the Psalms
Deliver me, O Lord, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues. Psalm 120:2
For the mouths of the wicked and the mouth of deceit are opened against me; they have spoken to me and against me with lying tongues. Psalm 109:2
They set their mouths against and speak down from heaven, and their tongues swagger through the earth [invading even heaven with blasphemy and smearing earth with slanders]. Psalm 73:9
Who whet their tongues like a sword, who aim venomous words like arrows, Psalm 64:3
My life is among lions; I must lie among those who are aflame—the sons of men whose teeth are spears and arrows, their tongues sharp swords. Psalm 57:4
The purpose of leviathan, Babylon, is to crush God’s people chew them up and spit them out. That is why we see the crocodile in reference to leviathan because it is those teeth that is seen as crushing something.
For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: The Daughter of Babylon is like a threshing floor at the time it is [being prepared]; yet a little while and the time of harvest shall come to her.34 [The inhabitants of Zion say] Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon has devoured us, he has crushed us, he has made us an empty vessel. Like a monster he has swallowed us up, he has filled his belly with our delicacies; he has rinsed us out and cast us away. Jeremiah 51:33-34 Amp.
A crocodile has the most powerful bite of any animal, but the muscles that actually open their jaws is very weak. Therefore, leviathan can be attacked and not steal, kill and destroy wounding others by binding up his mouth!!!!!!! God gives us the ability to bind up the enemy and whatever we bind on earth is bound in heaven. For the Spirit of leviathan to begin to be conquered in our lives we have to bind that spirit from operating and in the next note you will see further spiritual warfare regarding leviathan.
“Since they feed by grabbing and holding onto their prey, they have evolved sharp teeth for tearing and holding onto flesh, and powerful muscles to close the jaws and hold them shut. These jaws can bite down with immense force, by far the strongest bite of any animal. The pressure of the crocodile’s bite is more than 5,000 pounds per square inch (30,000 kPa), compared to just 335 pounds per square inch (2,300 kPa) for a Rottweiler, 400 pounds per square inch (2,800 kPa) for a large great white shark, 800 pounds per square inch (6,000 kPa) to 1,000 pounds per square inch (7,000 kPa) for a hyena, or 2,000 pounds per square inch (10,000 kPa) for a large alligator. The jaws are opened, however, by a very weak set of muscles. Crocodiles can thus be subdued for study or transport by taping their jaws or holding their jaws shut with large rubber bands cut from automobile inner tubes. They have limited lateral (side-to-side) neck movement.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crocodile)
It is going to take God’s people who are bold like King David that will stand up against Goliath, against leviathan, and stop the torment coming against God’s people so they are no longer mangled and wounded by the spirit of leviathan. When you stand up against the spirit believe me people will say you are proud, arrogant, and in rebellion that are operating leviathan because it allows them to stay in deception. However, if you press through even those that were under leviathan’s control coming against you will eventually get released of its grip and come into true repentance. God is raising those up like King David, William Wallace, Joan of Arc, Esther, Gideon, Joshua and more that will stand against a corrupt system and say “NO, NOT ON MY WATCH IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!”
THE ROAR CRY OF THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH REVELATION 5:5 IN US IS THE SOUND OF MANY WATERS REVELATION 1:15 AND CAUSING GOD’S PEOPLE TO UNITE TO RELEASE HIS WORD THAT IS A TUMULT LIKE A ROAR OF WAVES CRASHING (JEREMIAH 51:55) AGAINST LEVIATHAN.
IT HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN WHERE A LION TAKES DOWN A CROCODILE. IN THE LEVIATHAN NOTE SERIES ONE OF THE MEANINGS OF LEVIATHAN IS CROCODILE AND BABYLON AND BABYLON CRUSHES GOD’S PEOPLE WHEN THEY ARE IN CAPTIVITY. OK GET THIS THE CROCODILE HAS THE STRONGEST GRIP OF ANY ANIMAL IN THE WORLD (IN MY 5TH NOTE OF LEVIATHAN / PRIDE SERIES) AND IS THAT OF 5,000 LBS PER SQUARE INCH!!! NEVER HAS A CROCODILE BEEN DEFEATED BY A LION UNTIL……………………………………………… ONE DAY, DON’T YOU LOVE THE ONE DAYS…… A CROCODILE MESSES WITH A CUB AND 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES 3 LIONESSES GET TOGETHER AND TAKE THE CROCODILE DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON AND GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT IN US IS RISING UP THIS HOUR TO TAKE LEVIATHAN DOWN IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (LINK BELOW)
Part 6 to be continued seeing leviathan in God’s Word …………..
